Elijah (Pt. 2)

Waiting

Elijah modeled many godly behaviors, not the least of which was to pray and then wait with God. He waited for God’s timing.

Watch the video at the bottom of the page and learn how the prophet Elijah waited with God and had some amazing adventures.  

 

Memory Verse:

But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.

ISAIAH 40:31 (NKJV)

Going Further

Hi Everyone! A couple of ideas for family activities after watching this video:

1) Read 1 Kings 18.

2) Family Time.

  • Review the story of Elijah from 1 Kings 17 and 18.
  • Act out the story together. You can use a few props such as sheets/towels for costumes, flour, oil, sticks, colored crepe paper for fire, etc. Use your imagination!
  • After acting it out, ask which events in the story especially had meaning to them. Take time to listen and value each child’s input.
  • Discuss idol worshiping. What kind of idols do we worship today that stops us from putting Jesus first?
  • Discuss some practical ways, that as a family, “waiting with God” can be lived out. What kinds of things would God have you do during this time that you might not have thought about before COVID-19?
  • While waiting with God, Elijah was always talking with God, listening to Him, and obeying. Talk about what that means. Take the time to pray together as a family.

3) Activities.

  • Draw a picture about today’s lesson, take a picture of it and send it to Pastor Shaun so that it can be shared in next week’s video.
  • Scroll down to the music videos and sing along.
  • Have fun using the activities below.
